Over the years I have watched this masterpiece more often than any other feature film.
The Heron and the Crane
Pure visual poetry.
Grave of the Fireflies
An amazingly sad story, beautifully animated.
It is not just Miyazaki’s rich imagination that is so appealing, it is much more than that. The symbolism of his imagination goes straight to my core, as it were.
L' Homme Qui Plantait Des Arbres
A deeply moving and inspiring story. Back’s animation has a strong narrative fluidity where each scene transforms elegantly into the next.
Without doubt, this film has affected me emotionally more than any other film.
2001: A Space Odyssey
Still one of the most extraordinary examples of the power of intuitive storytelling. In other words, this story goes beyond reason, beyond structure and yet, somehow, it makes total sense.
JEDER FÜR SICH UND GOTT GEGEN ALLE
I’m deeply touched by the innocence and strange wisdom of this highly unusual man, Kaspar Hauser, played by the eccentric Bruno Schleinstein.
Character animation at its best.
This film continues to be the most beautiful example of neorealism.
